While Jackie Estacado's new adventure will feel a lot like his previous one, The Darkness II
introduces a new mechanic in "Quad-Wielding." This new ability will allow Jackie to not only use his dual weapons, but also engage a pair of demon arms in order to slash, grab and throw objects at enemies at the same time.
The Darkness II takes place two years after he realized his vengeance. Now, as the Don of the Estacado crime family, he has tried to suppress the evil supernatural powers that allowed him to wreak havoc on the city's underworld, but that same power doesn't like being cooped-up for so long. When a mob hit goes bad, Jackie is unable to keep The Darkness contained and will have to use the dark powers in order to solve the mysteries that have started appearing around him.
